The images are arranged as 256 (rows) x 256 (columns) by byte per pixel. Each
line follows the other. Thus the first 256 bytes of the first scanned line are
followed by the second 256 and so on.

File SNAP is on the disk and allows the user to capture images with the old
Tecmar Video Van gogh board. To use, type snap, select either for snap
and the picture will be stored on disk with file name PICTURE. You can then
load it directly into IMAGE.

To use IMAGE, type IMAGE or IMAGE -e (for EGA ) followed by . The
options are selected by pressing the capital letter from the displayed menu.

On a 20MHz AT, operations take a few seconds. On a PC, you can make coffee
between processes (unless you die of old age waiting...).

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!
